My loaches look like they're always hungry and beating up my plants. I have a piece of blanched lettuce under a pebble at the bottom for them and I feed them and the other inhabitants bloodworms twice a day.

Am I over feeding them? Are they still hungry? This is day two and they seem to be acting normally and eating well. The loaches were a little shy the first four hours or so but they took a nap (all cuddled under their rock) and now they're even interacting with the danios.

Sounds like they are acclimating well to the tank and tankmates. My loaches always ate whenever i put food down, though i try not to feed more than once daily. blood and blackworms were their favorite along with brine shrimp.
